The Boat Roller Coaster

Since Dorothy and I were able to ride a roller coaster at the Sylvan Beach Amusement Park we thought our boat SEASONS should have a little fun.  The Big Chute Marine Railway provided the perfect opportunity. It is the next to last lock (not really a lock) on the Trent Severn Waterway. This is the only time our boat covered some distance on the Loop without touching the water.

Big Chute Marine Railway at lock 44 of the Trent-Severn Waterway in Ontario, Canada. It works on an inclined plane to carry boats in individual cradles over a change of height of about 60 feet. It is the only marine railway of its kind in North America still in use, and is overseen by federally operated Parks Canada.


Here is a little video of our ride on the tram and some scenery afterwards;

A very peaceful anchorage all to ourselves in Georgian Bay.
